I made my other best girlfriend's daughter her birthday card. I am ahead of schedule I can't believe it. Her birthday is in 4 days so if I get this out in todays mail everything should be right on time. Keep your fingers crossed.
In one of my last Addicted orders I purchased this cute little mouse on his cheese. I had been eying this for some time. You should see my wish list there. Ohhhh I started day dreaming .. sorry. Ok my little stamp is called The Big Cheese and of course it's from Whipper Snapper. I decided to go with the sketch from the Crafty Calendar Challenge #11 - August Sketch. I really liked the boarder and ribbon at the top, it called to me.
The YNS Chanllenge #23 asked to use Bold, Bright, Summery colors & A Crafty Little Place Challenge #52 had great bold, bright, summer colors. The colors for their challenge was PINK - BLUE - GREEN.
Prairie Fairy Designs Challenge #33. Their theme this week is Punch it and I sure did. Added the ribbon and the flowers. I had them in the exact colors as the theme. Fab N Funky Challenges #36 theme this week is Flower Power which is just perfect for my card and so is this weeks challenge over at Charisma Chardz Challenge #33 which is Die Cuts. I just bought Spellbinders dies called Lables Two. It worked perfect when I cut out my image. I also used my hole punch and punched out the swiss cheese holes and popped him up. I colored him and the cheese with my copics. I am still practicing and learning to blend with them. It's not as easy as it looks. Last but not least to finish the inside of my card I used a new Sizzix die from a set - Decorative Label Set #4.
Ok now for the finished product. I know your thinking.. hello.. get to the card.. ok..ok.. I just wanted to make sure I explained everything.
Here's the inside. I didn't center it so that I would have room to write a bit to her.
